I am using a slideshow programme that has stilll photos showing as a slide show with music track.

If I write one to a dvd it is fine
But there is still room on the dvd. So I try and write another one to the same dvd and it says it will delete the first file

Please, how do I get around this

(The dvd disc is rewritable)

regards,
Ojos

I wouldnt use DVDRW, if you want to play it in a standalone dvd player

99.9% of the time, it wont play

WHAT program are you using to do this?

What program are you using to write the original to DVD ?

Some programs will write multi slide shows as a menu, but they do need to be done all at the same time, as in cant be added to at a later date.

If your dvd burner supports book type writing, you can change the dvd type to dvd-rom instead of DVD+RW. This may help improve compatibility for older set top dvd players.

This problem concerns me also. I find PhotoStory3 with the Sonic (Roxio) DVD plug-in works very well in creating single slideshow projects. But it's very difficult (ie impossible) to contact their customer support re a solution to this.
What other program will allow multiple projects on the one DVD, with an up-front menu to select from?

Unless you leave it open (multisession), you wont be able to add more files to it

It finalises it. If the program cant do that, you'll have to either update the program, or use another program

I have never had any problems with Rewritables but best to close/finalize the session to play it on a DVD Player, some older players don't like open DVDs.

What Slideshow program are you using?

Your program should tell you how much room is left available on the DVD before burning so that you can add more photos to fill it up.

ProShow Gold is what I use. It isn't free but it does have a lot of options to choose from, including multiple projects/chapters with a menu. You can download a trial to see if you like it before buying.
